meningitis caused by bacteria, which can be treated with antibiotics typically, or the most common form which is viral meningitis. we typically hear about that, for example, on college campuses. fungal meningitis can be very serious, can cause very significant symptoms, but the good news here if there is any is that it's often not very contagious. now, the way they pieced this together is a real medical investigation. you had people getting this rare form of meningitis in different states all over, you know, different times over the summer, and eventually they were able to trace this back to the medication, a type of steroid that is often used as an injection in and around the spinal cord to treat back pain. what they found as well was that what happens, the manufacturer of the steroid will send it to a compounding facility where they can divvy up the doses into smaller doses and send that out to hospitals and clinics. they believe at that point, that's where the contamination occurred. in some cases, they could actually see mold, which is what fungus is, they could see that mold in some of these vials.
